Another way you can control Keyboard Maestro editor is using the “
keyboardmaestro” URL scheme, which supports the following formats:
|Example Editor URL Command||Description|
| ||Enter your username/serial number.|
| || Edit a specific macro or macro group.
You may used either the Macro Name, or UUID.
| ||Filter macros with this keyword.|
| ||Select a macro group and filter macros with this keyword.|
| ||Filter actions with this keyword.|
| ||Select action category and filter actions with this keyword.|
You can trigger a macro (that is Active and Enabled) using the “
kmtrigger” URL scheme. The URL uses this format:
kmtrigger://macro=<Macro Name or UUID>[&<Trigger Value>]
<Macro Name or UUID>is either the Macro Name, OR, its UUID
<Trigger Value>is the optional Trigger Value
[ ]are not included. Used only to show optional parameters
&must precede the Trigger Value, if it is provided.
Note both Macro Name and Trigger Value must be URL encoded.
You can easily get the Trigger URL by clicking on the “Or by Script” Trigger option, and selecting “Or by URL”.
|Example Trigger URL Command||Description|
| ||Using the Macro Name|
| ||Using the Macro UUID|
| ||Using Macro Name with Trigger Value|
| ||Using Macro UUID with Trigger Value|
kmtrigger URL will only work on the local Mac, but you can use the Remote trigger to trigger macros with a URL even from remote locations via the Keyboard Maestro trigger server.
